HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Rocket City Barbershop Chorus is making it's rounds, delivering Valentines, but it's not your usual chocolates and flowers.

Some women in the Tennessee Valley are in for a musical surprise. 

"The Slide Rules" are a quartet within the chorus. They made their way around town, delivering singing Valentine's to unsuspecting women.

The first stop was Gold's Gym, where Amy was the first "victim." Her boyfriend bought her the singing valentine package, and she was more than surprised. The chorus nabbed her while she was working out on the elliptical machine and after getting over her initial shock, she admits it was better than chocolate or flowers.

Next, they traveled over to the Downtown Rescue Mission where Becky McRoy works. Her husband of 51 years sprung for the singing surprise, which wasn't just a surprise to her, but her co-workers too!

Becky admitted it was her best Valentine's day gift yet and more than makes up for the time her husband forgot the holiday!

It was their first Valentine's Day together as a married couple and Becky remembers,

"We were married on February 10, 1962 and on February 14, 1962, he forgot Valentine's Day. I've been ribbing him ever since."

For $45, you get a rose, a personalized card, and two songs sung to your sweetheart. There are still a few spots left.
